I found a lasting dear friend when I met Betty. She was always smiling and we enjoyed each others company so much.
We would have some good laughs but also we enjoyed talking of God's word and how we wanted to go to heaven.

I will never forget Betty and how she was always so pretty and wore her clothes and makeup like a queen.
We had plans to go out and have lunch and just have a great time, but Betty's health just kept deteriorating and I would often remind her that we had an appointment to keep and she would smile and say that she would get better and that we could.

Oh how I loved this woman, my friend Betty Calloway!

I have so many fond memories of aunt Betty when we were kids, from working in the fields to playing dress up in her clothes and make up. I spent many summers with them in Birmingham and she always made it fun for us kids. We also spent a lot of time together as families. Love and miss you always❤️
